Birthday and Mother's Day

May has always been a busy month for me. This year in addition to our normal activities and my babysitting job, my birthday and Mother's Day fell on the same weekend. They usually are pretty close together but not always. My Mom told me when I was born she got to bring me home from the hospital on Mother's Day!
Birthdays aren't really a huge deal for me and I definitely don't feel any different...although since I'm 24 now I guess I'll soon be out of the 18 - 24 age category you get asked about on surveys and things! :-D It is nice to be celebrated though.


On Friday, I went shopping with my Mom, my Aunt and my daughter. We ate at Olive Garden and got some great deals at Fashion Bug. I got a new purse and matching wallet (thanks Dad!) and some new clothes. My mom and aunt were fashion advisers for the day. :) As I've mentioned previously, this is the year of weddings and I now have some new fabulous dresses to wear to them! One of them my hubby and I think is very fifties-esque and I am just in love with it. I've got some cute (fake) pearls to wear with it and I'm on the hunt for a cheap pair of pumps. Or I may just wear my white low heeled shoes.


Mother's Day was pretty nice for me as well. Our church service was very nice and they gave all the mothers some beautiful flowers. My son made me a super cute card in children's church and gave me another card after we got home that was signed by him and our chickens. :) My hubby and kids took me out to lunch at one of our favorite Mexican places and then we spent the rest of the day with family at my Grandma's house. My parents got me an ice cream cake for my birthday that was shaped like a pink purse! It was adorable. I'm a very lucky momma and daughter! :)

  1. I always thought it was cool to move up from the 18-24 age category, haha.

    I want to see your new 50's dress! :) I always love retro style dresses.
